“..the strong middle and ending roar past these problems and leave things feeling nicely complete..”
by Tom Long [Detroit News]
“..the movie may not top The Avengers at the worldwide box office, but it is a far, far better thing - maybe the best, most troubling, assured and enthralling of all the superhero movies..”
by Richard Corliss [TIME Magazine]
“..notable for many things-thrilling chases, supercool vehicles, majestic vistas, an epic scale that hasn't been achieved since "The Lord of the Rings," a redemptive climax that brings an end, more or less, to a complex saga..”
by Joe Morgenstern [Wall Street Journal]
